If you can get through to an agent, they probably can fix it on the phone. It is Monday and the filing deadline is approproaching. Expect that you would have a long wait.

Since efiling, we haven't had any further problems with data entry errors. The one year we did, the agent was able to resolve the problem on the phone. The value of a line was entered for the line above. The agent checked some reference, I don't know if it was scanned copies of the return or other information submitted to the IRS, to verify then corrected the problem.

The letter should have instructions on how to contest the change. I would go this route. If you don't receive a response by April 18th, then call.
